Mitch Wagner calls into question
, widely circulated in blogdom, of the man who claims to have been arrested at Portland International Airport after complaining about his wife’s treatment by security guards. Mitch probes the story from several directions, and while he doesn’t disprove it, he finds a significant absence of corroborating evidence as well. (Mitch is an old friend who worked as a newspaper reporter before becoming a tech journalist, and it’s a pleasure to see his blog
back up and running.)
I have to confess, I didn’t link to the airport-security story myself because I simply have a hard time believing anything posted to LewRockwell.com, which probably means I’m missing some important facts about the world because I can’t quite make the time for a site that routinely mixes libertarian polemics with paeans to the glorious Confederacy. So it goes.
